This is why I like 70...check out any number of shows during the summer and fall for these effects. The work in the studio translates to the live shows...really.

I agree with Tell- another reason 1970 is my favorite year (Phil couldn't sing in 1970 either, but the others were doing so well most nights that they were able to sort of pull him along and keep him in an acceptable range).

Check out the "Attics" from 6/24/70- some of their best live vocal work ever.

Yep, for me GD vocal harmony = 70. There is some great stuff from other years but they never had the precision plus vocal strength as they did in 70.
Although check out this http://www.archive.org/details/gd91-09-26.sbd.fishman.21242.sbeok.shnf {91 harmonies huh?} Attics and WBYGN where I think they do a really excellent job harmonizing their creaky old voices which is a pretty applaud able feat. Jerry actually sounds about 10 years younger on this.

The unison at the outset of Attics and the gradual divergence into harmony reminded me of this gem. Call me a sap for these guys, but this always gets me.

There used to be a broadcast version up. The old sbd vs aud thing prevails once again....but what we really need is a matrix, huh?

Yea it's hard to hear clearly in that copy but it does sound like they nail it when you can hear it. Vocal harmonies was the one thing I think Vince improved with the band in retrospect.
